A homeless woman with a rat perched on her shoulder stands on the corner of Yancy Street, holding a cardboard sign reading "CARNAGE RULES!" and begging for change. As she begins to mutter that change is coming, a man in a business suit runs into her and knocks the sign out of her hand - having been talking on his smartphone and not paying attention to where he's going. The businessman initially snaps at her to watch where she's going before apologizing for his rudeness and holding out some money, but the woman ominously states that change is already there. Her eyes turning black, the homeless woman grabs the businessman's face as her fingers turn into claws, snarling that "change" is coming for Ben Grimm. As the woman releases him and resumes begging for change, the businessman flees in terror.

We strive to provide the best possible product to our customers. However, all copies are only guaranteed nm- 9.2 or higher. A NM- 9.2 is categorized as a nearly perfect copy that looks brand new with only a few very minor defects.

We cannot guarantee 9.8 copies. In some cases, it is possible for a comic shipped brand new from the publisher to already be in less than near mint condition due to the way the comic was produced, shipped, stored, or handled prior to purchase.
